Think back on your childhood for a minute. Remember all of those birthday parties you went to when you were little? The cake, the party hats, the games.
It didn’t matter if the party was being held for a boy or a girl, had a princess theme or revolved around superheroes, it almost always included a game of pin the tail on the donkey (or at least some variation of it).
One of my most vivid memories of this game involved me standing on a deck, being blindfolded, handed a tail, and spun around. I took a step forward and proceeded to fall right off the deck. Yep, those were some good times right there!
But I wouldn’t let that deter me! I wanted to share this little piece of my childhood with Nicholas but also wanted to find a way to do so without bodily injury.
After some thought and a little trial and error, it finally came together, just how I pictured it.
Our pin the tail on the bunny, color matching Easter game!
It’s super simple, a lot of fun, educational, and the best part, mess free!
To make one of your own you’ll need:
- Both pages of the Pin the Tail on the Bunny printable (see below)
- Pom Poms in coordinating colors
- Hot Glue Gun
- Supplies to laminate (optional
After you’ve printed out your bunnies, go ahead and cut them out. I went ahead and laminated them just to make them a little more durable and to help the Velcro stick.
Add the rough side of your Velcro to the bottom of each bunny.
And the other side of your Velcro to the pom poms.
Use the hot glue gun here! I promise you, I tried it and it just doesn’t end well. Even the sticky Velcro just isn’t sticky enough. Use your glue gun to attach the Velcro to your pom poms and you won’t have a problem 🙂
And you’re done! See, I told you! Simple, easy, and mess free!
All that’s left for you to do is share the color matching fun with your toddler while you explain to them how lucky they are that no one is spinning them around blindfolded 🙂
